Bring on the color! Today’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge includes a yummy combination of Primrose Petals, Pool Party and Real Red.  I used plenty of Whisper White to keep the look uncomplicated!  Check out the rest of the colorful challenge cards designed by the PPA Resident Artist Team and play along HERE.


  • The top Real Red flag was sliced down the middle and spaced slightly apart to give it more “architecture.”

  • Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots keep the button (Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack) and Primrose Petals Dahlia in place.
  • Bling!  A Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone Basic Jewel accents the bird cage (image from Aviary stamp set).

  • The sentiment is from Sweet Essentials stamp set–the perfect basic for day to day stamping.
  • Jet Black Stazon provides a crisp impression and dries quickly on Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White card stock.  FYI:  Stampin’ Up! is working on a solution for improved dry time of Basic Black Classic Ink on our Whisper White and Very Vanilla card stock.
